Declan (41) says he was fit and healthy before he contracted Covid-19.
He says: "You see how exhausted and overwhelmed the staff are and they are not getting the thanks they deserve. They don't have the adequate staff to cover the ward. The HSE is at its knees and no one is doing anything about it".
Declan also told Tommy Marren that he had to care for an elderly lady on his ward because the staff were overwhelmed with patients sicker than them.
